Consequently the New PDP governors have decided to take their destinies into their hands. It’s now obvious that the peace move have hit a brick wall. OluFamous.Com gathered that the Governors have met and they are now ready to go out of the PDP and accept the “warm embrace of the APC.”
A hint to this effect emerged during the Sallah holiday when Adamawa State Governor, Murtala Nyako, told a visiting APC delegation on Wednesday, that himself and the six other aggrieved New PDP governors, are being victimized in the PDP and are ready to leave. Other aggrieved governors are Sule Lamido (Jigawa); Rabiu Kwakwanso (Kano); Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers); Babangida Aliyu (Niger); Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara); and Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto).
The National Vice-Chairman North-East of the APC, Umar Duhu, who led the delegation to the government residence in Yola, offered Nyako a piece of kola nut and an invitation in accordance with the northern tradition.
The Director of Press to Governor Nyako, Ahmad Sajo, said:
“The governor told them he is committed to supporting them; he admires all the APC governors for the way they are focused in their performance. He abhors the injustice and impunity that are going on in the PDP and he also frowns on the fact that someone would emerge as the party’s candidate at the local level and the PDP will change the name of the person in Abuja and submit a different person’s name.” “These are the reasons (injustice and impunity) why we may have to dump the PDP, if they will not change their ways. We may definitely be pushed to the warm embrace of the APC.”
When Amaechi and other G-7 governors join APC, the PDP will become an opposition party in Nigeria as the APC will be in control of a minimum of 18 states, while the PDP will have just about 15 states.
